Suitcase Diaries: Three Key Pieces

When you’re living out of a suitcase, sometimes the easiest way to get dressed is to simply pair your three favorite pieces together…

Tomorrow’s the big day; I can’t believe I’m moving to New York!

I was particularly productive over the weekend: I shipped my out-of-season shoes and such home, donated a lot to the American Red Cross and  successfully purged my jewelry collection. For the next month, now, I have just two suitcases to survive on, which should make for an interesting batch of outfit posts.

My recent recipe for an easy, wear-anywhere outfit entails this chunky sweater, my boyfriend jeans and a pair of statement pumps. They’ll be in heavy rotation when we hit the ground running in NYC!

*Wearing: Zara chunky sweater | Joe’s boyfriend jeans, Alice + Olivia pumps |
Prada sunglasses | thrifted Gucci clutch (and here’s the story behind that)

  1. I absolutely love looks like this (with basic pieces and then something ‘wow’). It’s a perfect way to dress when you can’t have a lot and you still look fabulous! Glad to hear things went well in preparation for your move. Hope things continue to go smoothly!

  2. Congrats on your move! Great look too… love slouchy sweater. I can relate as I am preparing to move to NYC the beginning of June (from Seattle) so a lot of planning to do as well. I hope all goes well for you and you keep us updated!

  3. These photos are perfect. The outfit choice goes SO WELL with the backdrop on the ledge!! Those shoes <3 You're going to make such a statement in NYC.
